Sakura (Cherry Blossom)
A cherry blossom (or commonly known in Japan as sakura) is the flower of any of several trees of genus Prunus, particularly the Japanese cherry. Currently it is widely distributed, especially in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere including Japan, China, Korea, Europe, West Siberia, Iran, Pakistan, India, Canada, and the United States. Along with the chrysanthemum, the cherry blossom is considered the national flower of Japan. Many of the varieties that have been cultivated for ornamental use do not produce fruit. Edible cherries generally come from cultivars of the related species Prunus avium and Prunus cerasus. Cherry blossom are also closely related to other Prunus trees such as the almond, peach, plum and apricot and more distantly to apples, pears and roses.

 
Design

The reverse design presents the image by Anna Bucciarelli is filled with bright, springtime cheer as it captures the peak splendour of a blossoming cherry tree. Selective colour and engraving are combined in this close view of a flower-laden branch, where the cluster of white and pink-coloured petals includes a number of engraved buds and leaves. The five-petal blossoms that have inspired countless artists are the very embodiment of “BEAUTY”, represented by the kanji character positioned just above the bough. All around the reverse, the inscriptions: “FINE SILVER 9999 ARGENT PUR” – the fineness of the silver, “8 DOLLARS” – the face value, “2019” – the year of issue and “CANADA” – the issuing country. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscription: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen and “D·G·REGINA” – Dei Gratia Regina.
